Hi everyone...........Hope you are well and enjoying some crafty time. Just a quick post to share some photographs of my wonderful crafty day with the fabulous Finnabair :-)
Damsel Fly and the Queen Bee, Great Western Road, Glasgow, held a Finnabair Workshop Weekend 5th/6th October and my lovely mum and I attended on the Saturday. It was an early start....not because Glasgow is that far away from us but I love to spend time with my two old Furballs and I am a bit of a fouter in the morning.
Lo and behold we were first to arrive and had a lovely chat with Annie & Yvonne from DFQB and Anna.
'Thank You' ladies for a lovely day and fab lunch, with yummy cakes, sandwiches and quiche :-)
Look forward to attending more of your classes.
Then it was heads down as we learned to create Mixed Media projects Finnabair style.
The kits were amazing with stunning Prima Papers, laces and embellishments, some of which were designed by Anna herself. I really wanted to keep them in the packaging as they were so nice....... but that's not the deal!!!
The photograph below is Anna and I at the end of the day, which was from 9-6.30pm and the time flew in.
I did not quite finish my makes as I had some pieces that I knew I wanted to add and I still had at least another coat of gesso to apply, but I wanted to share them with you anyway.
Below is the canvas that I made using the kit and a photo image provided by mum.
In the afternoon we created this wonderful mixed media layout and I have to say I fell in love with this style/techniques.
A close up...still to be finished but I just love it :-)
Anna's class was wonderful...she is an excellent teacher who is genuinely inspired by everything around her and enjoys sharing her style/techniques with fellow crafters.
I am so looking forward to my next class with Anna, which is in Wirksworth, 30th November. Of course I am looking forward to meeting up with my lovely blog friend Redanne as well.
Take care and I shall be visiting you all Tuesday /Wednesday as I am having an early night tonight
Best Wishes and Crafty Hugs xx
